Posted:juggle weavesmiley Manchester Spinners Meet up and stuff weavesmiley juggle



Hi all If you are looking for people to spin poi with in the North west this is the place to be.



For any one new to this sight DONT READ THE WHOLE THREAD it has been going a long time and contains lots of old information and chat about previous meet ups and organisation stuff just go to the last few posts to find out the most up-to-date information on current events.



First a bit of info the Manchester spinners lot is no professional spinning troop or organised events it is just a group of people who get together to enjoy themselves. The first meet up was organised way beck in September 04 http://delizium.fotopic.net/c291964.html
br>
The crowd has changed a bit from back then but we have kept a few old timers we welcome all along to come and join us for a spin whether you be experienced or a complete beginner we are willing to teach and learn from you.



Their is no set time for the meet ups they are usually organised around when people can make it and how long they can stay.



I will try to update this first post as often as I can with the most up-to-date info on meet ups and club nights that allow spinning but if I'm being a bit lax just find the last few posts foe up-to-date info (like I said before werent you paying attention)



To date the standard meets have gone as meet up in Piccadilly gardens at 4pm (nice central point where every one can get to) Then move on down to the Gas Works/CastleField or Plat fields Park depending on the wether till everyone gets to cold/tired/burned then on to the pub

( anybody who doesnt know where this is it can be arranged for someone to come meet you at the train station or wherever you are coming from .) smile

{ ubblove We are a nice bunch like that ubblove}



Accommodation for a night can usually be arranged but you need to sort this well in advance no just turning up expecting somewhere to sleep eek





(more to be added and all to be spell checked soon)



pm me any info you would like to add



before i met those lot i thought they'd be a bunch of dreadlocked hippies that smoked, set things on fire ,and drank a lot of tea but then when i met them....oh wait (PyroWill)

Boo! @ Pyrowill



I'm thinking I might pop down about 16:30 as I wanna go see a film called 'Brick' at the Cornerhouse which starts at 13:55 as is 110mins long.



I'll just walk down after its finished. If you're still at Gasworks then ok, if you've already gone to Castlefield I'll follow shortly.



I'm going on my own but if anyone else wants to join me, feel free...

Posted:Most garages Sell parafin, I'm sure the one in between Withington anf Fallowfield or the one just past Rusholme should sell it and are likely to be open tomorrow, beyond that I have no idea, sorry.

As for meeting point we are meeting at the Gasworks for 3pm (or that seems to be the consensus the Dave started) because it is not as far to walk from there to Castlefield as it would be from Piccadilly Gardens.

And no Willy, shame, it isnt due to the speaading ticket thing is it?

Posted:Hey guys - apologies for my quick dissapearance but i'd had a [censored] day at work and really wasn't in the mood, I just wanted to get back home (boy, did I regret that when I got in), so I didn't stay.

Presumably Steaks managed to get back without collapsing? :P

I feel even more guilty now frown

Sorry for throwing the stick at your leg dude. One second it was on my arm, the next it was being magnetically drawn to your shin.



Lee, Havent seen you since that first spin just off canal street!



Everyone - I think we should have the meets every fortnight now as its getting warmer. I'd suggest leaving it 3 weeks now as I think myself, lowan and a small crew may be going to kent on the 27th (nudge nudge, wink wink wink ). I'm open to suggestion though smile



Also - I've mentioned a couple of things to a few of you about my plans for the summer but I'm going to start putting some of it into action over the next few weeks. For starters I'm going to PLI sorted. I'm also going to do a first aid course and attempt to get some work doing workshops and spinning at various events over the summer. If anyone would like to to help out or be a guinea pig for me (all you have to do is eat lettuce and squeak wink ) could you drop me a message via the usual channels or through my site http://www.your-world.co.uk
- thanks.



smile

Its on the 27th? Oh crap! I have told my friend to get a day off work this weekend! Plus I am not sure if I am working then. Could you give me any details you have on the event?

Anyway, it was a good meet on Sunday! The turnout was average but plenty of new faces! Well cool to see so many people wanting to get into the art. biggrin
